Smash Cast Crazy Dreams

Hello you long shots

You dark horse runners

Hairbrush singers, dashboard drummers

Hello you wild magnolias

Just waiting to bloom

There’s a little bit of all that inside of me and you

Thank God even crazy dreams come true

I stood at the bottom of some walls I thought I couldn’t climb

I felt like Cinderella at the ball just running out of time

So I know how it feels to be afraid

Think that it’s all gonna slip away

Hold on, hold on

Here’s to you free souls, you firefly chasers

Tree climbers, porch swingers, air guitar players

Here’s to you fearless dancers, shaking walls in your bedrooms

There’s a lot of wonder left inside of me and you

Thank God even crazy dreams come true

Never let a bad day be enough

To go and talk you in to giving up

Sometimes everybody feels like you

Oh, feels like you, just like you

Yeah

I’ve met some go-getters

Some difference makers

Small town heroes, and big chance takers

I’ve met some young hearts with something to prove

Oh, yeah

Here’s to you long shots

You dark horse runners

Hairbrush singers, and dashboard drummers

Here’s to you wild magnolias

Just waiting to bloom

There’s a little bit of all that inside of me and you

Thank God even crazy dreams come true

Thank God even crazy dreams come true

Yeah

Smash Cast I Never Met A Wolf Who Didn’t Love To Howl

[Prologue / Ivy (“Marilyn”):]

When you are born with sex appeal

In a forest called Hollywood,

You’ll find more wolves at your backdoor

Than that Little Red Riding Hood.

Now she and her little old Gramma

Could have learned from the men I’ve dated

That a wolf can be quite a devotee

Once he’s domesticated!

[Ivy:]

Here’s a lesson they should teach in school,

When a girl gets curvy, and the boys all drool,

If math and science just ain’t your style,

Just give that teacher a wink and a smile,

For a passing grade, you won’t have to wait,

And you can thank him later when you graduate,

Cause I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

No, I never met a man who wasn’t on the prowl,

If a nice diploma you wanna get,

Well, then, make that teacher the student’s pet,

Yeah, I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

You never know where a wolf might crouch,

But his natural habitat’s the casting couch,

So take lots of pictures of the wildlife,

To tell the wolf you could share with his wife,

The Hunter gets captured by the game,

Then Leo the Lion will be roaring your name!

Yeah, I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

No, I never met a man who wasn’t on the prowl,

If your face and figure are whistle bait,

Then honey, you’ll have the keys to the studio gate!

Yeah, I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

[Ensemble:]

The three little piggies sure had it wrong

When the wolf came-a-knockin’ with that old song

[Ivy:]

He was huffin’ and puffin’ sayin’ “Marilyn, I gotcha!”

I say “Come on in” & I put on Sinatra.

Oh, Frankie!

A wealthy wolf likes to buy his toys

But he really is just one of the boys.

If you’ve got something for which he’s cravin’,

It sure is good that he’s been savin’.

Be a fan, give his cheek a peck

But get his autograph on a cashier’s check.

Yeah, I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

No, I never met a man who wasn’t on the prowl.

Even if that wolf’s just a grey old goat

[Lyle:] WHAT?!

[Ivy:]

He still will make a nice fur coat.

Yeah, I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

Go, baby, go!

Yeah, I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

No, I never met a man who wasn’t on the prowl.

This wolf looks like he’s ready to dine.

[Lyle:] Tell me, where can I sign on the dotted line?

[Ivy:]

Yeah, I never met a wolf who didn’t love to howl!

Oh, yeah!

Smash Cast Don’t Say Yes Until I Finish Talking

[Male Ensemble:]

A studio executive has no beliefs

That’s the way of a studio system

We bow to every rear of all the studio chiefs

And you can bet your ass we’ve kissed ’em

Even the birds in the Hollywood hills

Know the secret to our success

It’s those magical words that pay the bills:

Yes, yes, yes, and yes

[A bunch of scuffling about Darryl Zanuck coming]

[Tom:] Gentlemen! Take a memo.

Today the Trades are all aglow

With grosses for our Miss Monroe

The things those vermin mustn’t know

Is what she puts us through

She makes directors wait all day

One line per hour is all she’ll say

And still, she thinks we’re gonna pay

She needs a talking to

Tomatoes like her must be put in their place

If she don’t shape up soon, she’ll soon be walking

‘Cause the buck stops with me

([Ensemble:] Yes you’re right, we agree!)

Uh, don’t say yes until I finish talking

She’s got them all tied up in knots

Makes each producer faint in plots

She thinks she’s queen and calls the shots

As she sits on a throne

She needs to learn she’s only skin

The next girl’s waiting for a spin

I made a star of Rin Tin Tin

And paid him with a bone

Tomatoes like her

Well, they’re easy to find

We throw them out as soon as they start squawking

So, get me some younger dish

([Ensemble:] We concur, as you wish!)

Hey! Don’t say yes until I finish talking

And while you got me on a roll

Let’s find a role for Nat King Cole

Tell Lankowitz his script is trite

A little lower, to the right

I think that Brando is mis-cast

That television just won’t last

That I’m the king of Hollywood

([Ensemble:] All hail the king!)

Oh, that feels good

Which brings me back to that dumb blonde

To her demands, I now respond

Some buy her act, but I’m not conned

You better fall in line

You’re too bazooms and nuts to boot

I’ll keep you in a bathing suit

When you stop bringing in the loot

Well, go back to the vine

Tomatoes like you

They all whither and die

My powers, though, will never be diminished

So don’t bring me to my boiling point

You’re just a broad, I own the joint

I’m in control, you’re just a face

So allow me to cut to the chase

I’ll make another movie star

Can someone light my damn cigar?

And then say “yes”

Cause yes, men

I’m finished

[Ensemble:]

YES!

Smash Cast Cheers
